A teenage boy has turned himself after being sought as a suspect in a shooting earlier this week at a West St. Paul gas station. 

West St. Paul police were called to the Super America at 1285 South Robert Street on Monday night on reports of a shooting, and upon arrival they found an adult male with multiple gunshot wounds to the leg.

The victim was transported to the hospital for treatment, and police began an investigation. 

Investigators determined that it was not a random shooting, and they identified a 15-year-old boy from St. Paul as the suspect. The teen turned himself into the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office on Thursday afternoon. 

The teen is being held at the Dakota County Juvenile Detention Center on charges of probable cause attempted murder, and second-degree assault. Formal charges are pending. 

The victim in the shooting did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
